    Shine

    [Verse 1]
    Finally not waking up dreaming of your ghost
    And music is for everyone
    Why was I always the last to know?
    No idea how hard it was to get this close
    With all this extra baggage
    And a graft that will not accept the host
    These tattered coat-tails, these torn tennis shoes
    I am not smarter than many
    But I do think that I'm smarter than you
    Dappled sunlight that the warm air reciprocates
    You look up long enough to notice
    But not long enough to appreciate that

    [Chorus 1]
    Down here in the flight path
    Down here in the flight path, we do our best
    Down here in the flight path, we do our best
    To keep our heads up

    [Verse 2]
    I'll sing loud at water falling on stones
    I want well-timed time with friends
    And well-timed time that I'll spend alone
    Throw my body into insignificant positions
    I'm gonna make more starts
    Complete more chances and more finishes
    Fly through the world like a whirling dervish in a hurricane
    Take off my clothes and run screaming in the pouring rain
    Kiss people even when I'm pretty sure it's a mistake
    And try to find a love that not for a second I'll have to fake

    [Chorus 1]
    Down here in the flight path
    Down here in the flight path, we do our best
    Down here in the flight path, we do our best
    To keep our heads
    Down here in the flight path
    Down here in the flight path, we do our best
    Down here in the flight path, we do our best
    To keep our heads

    [Bridge]
    And the sun will rise
    In the same place every day
    It would be arrogant to think
    That we could change anything
    Except maybe block its rays
    But who would wanna do that anyway?
    And I will rise
    In a different place almost every day
    It would be arrogant to think (It would be arrogant to think)
    That we could change anything (That we could change anything)
    But if you're here to block my rays
    You're gonna have to get the fuck out of my way

    [Chorus 2]
    'Cause I will shine on you
    Like it was the only thing I ever wanted to do
    I will shine on you
    Like it was the only thing that ever mattered
    And all I was put on this earth to do
    I will shine on you

    [Post-Chorus]
    One day it's gonna spit me out
    But I just gotta stick my landing
    Be okay with being talked about
    It's hard to not feel loved right now
    Let's wrap our arms around each other
    Shake our imperfect bodies around
    One day it's gonna spit me out
    But I just gotta stick my landing
    Be okay with being talked about
    It's hard to not feel loved right now
    Let's wrap our arms around each other
    Shake our imperfect bodies around

    [Chorus 1]
    Down here in the flight path
    Down here in the flight path, we do our best
    Down here in the flight path, we do our best
    To keep our heads
